Who Recieves Which Types of LAKASS Interventions in Abra?

Michael M. Alba, Anne Rose D. Cabuang


Using data on 1620 household beneficiaries of the Lalakas ang Katawang Sapat sa Sustansiya (LAKASS) program in Abra, we estimate an ordered probit model to explore the associations between the type of interventions received by these households and their socioeconomic and demographic characteristics. On results show that the degree of LAKASS interventions received may be systematically identified by the ages of the wife and the undernourished child, the occupation of the husband, and the income class of the households. Moreover, analysis of the marginal effects of these variables suggest that poorer families as well as those with younger children and mothers, all of whom are likely to need more assistance, did tend to receive more from the LAKASS program.
